History of Germany
Germany is younger than you think
The nation we informally call Germany (official name: Federal Republic of Germany, Bundeslip Dssland) is much younger than the United States! Even if we go back to Prussia (Preston) and the first German solidarity of 1871, which makes Germany almost a century smaller than the United Nations (the constitution was ratified in 1789). But let’s start at the beginning.
History of Germany tribes
The first people in the region we now call Germans were Celts. They gradually became displaced by the Germanic tribes moving north, but their origin is unknown. Around the first century BC (BC), clashes broke out between German tribes and Romans who migrated north to Germany. Control of the region continued until CE (AD) when German fighters Armenius (Hermann) and his army defeated the Romans in the famous battle of Tutberger Wald. The Romans were forced to stay south of the Elbe River for a time, but eventually colonized much of northern Europe. Roman influence can be seen in many German cities to this day, most of which are taking their names from Latin: Cologne, Terrier, Mains, Coblins, and Augsburg. The German word Caesar (Emperor) comes from Caesar.
Carl der Grove (Charlemagne)
By the fifth century, the Franks on the west coast of the Rhine had developed an empire that included present-day France, Germany, the Netherlands, and even northern Italy. King Clovis of Merovingia (482-511) converted to Christianity and ruled over Frank. By the 600s the Carolingians of the Maroons had replaced them, and the most famous of them, Carl der Groi (Charlemagne, 768-814), conquered the land even more, and in 800 the Pope’s Caesar. Was crowned. It made Aachen a Frankish. The capital of the German nation was its Holy Roman Empire “First Reich”. Frank Rish would later be divided into the area we now know as Germany in the east of the Rhine, and France in the west.
After his death in 814, the successors of Charlemagne (his son) were, unfortunately, the least able rulers, and his empire began to decline. Over the next few centuries, the area, which is now History of Germany, was divided into several separate Duchesses, kingdoms and states.
Bismarck and German Alliance
After Napoleon defeated Brandenburg-Prussia after conquering the French army, Prussia was encouraged. The French were expelled in 1813. Two years later in the Congress of Vienna, Germany was included in 35 Confederate states. But this scattered situation will change as the industrial revolution changes throughout Europe. After the failure of the French and German liberal revolutions of 1848, Otto von Bismarck took the stage in Prussia. The “Iron Chancellor” was no liberal. He was an old guard military man whose mission was to unite Germany, led by Prussia.
Bismarck began the war against Denmark and Austria in 1864, seeking the acquisition of Schleswig-Holstein. (Continue…)
History of Germany since 1945
The Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), the present government of Germany and the constitution (das Grundseitz), was established on May 23, 1949. After World War II, Germany was divided into eastern and western parts. On October 7, 1949, the Soviet occupation territory in East Germany became the German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Democratis Republic). East Germany had a very central, communist government.
Until the notorious German wall was built in August 1961, Germans could travel freely back and forth between East and West Germany. The wall will become a symbol of both the Cold War and a divided Germany until its surprising end in November 1989. Berlin (East and West) was the stronghold of espionage and the Cold War conspiracy.
Although most Germans thought that would never happen, the reunion in Germany arrived in 1990 with a small warning. The collapse of the Soviet Union and other historical events led to rapid changes in the world map and political landscape. West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl presided over the early return to East Germany, rejecting some people’s claims, saying it was too early.
Joining Germany today, the EU is the strongest country in terms of the strongest economy and population. Germany, along with France and Britain, has reluctantly accepted a leadership role within the European Union. The ongoing euro crisis has forced Germany into a more dominant position, causing it to become upset, but it is not possible to survive because of its leading economy.
